Following a visit with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, Long Island Congressman Steve Israel said Netanyahu’s is hoping the temporary cease fire with Hamas will last.
“His essential message to us is that Israel wants peace and quiet and hopes that Hamas also wants peace and quiet. And if in fact they do, there can be a sustainable cease fire,” he said.
The Long Island Democratic is leading a bipartisan delegation of nine members of Congress who are visiting Israel this week. They met with the Israeli prime minister in Jerusalem.
